Yes, I remember when we were in Buedu - when we were in Buedu, by then all of them had come back. One day we were taken out of the cells and taken to Mosquito's house, where we met Mr Musa Cisse. He said he had been sent there by Charles Taylor to talk on our behalf so that we would be put either on parole or released. But when he gave the message, Mosquito said the only thing he can do for us without anybody's instruction is to kill us.
